COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned English style ’real ale’. Burnt amber in color, it has a rich malt body and floral hop aroma. A batch was brewed in the Hook Norton brewery, UK, in 2015 to be sold from the cask at the UK pub chain, J D Wetherspoon for their Spring 2015 beer festival: "Dave Edney has travelled to Hook Norton Brewery, in Oxfordshire, to brew this beer especially for this Wetherspoon real-ale festival. This amber-coloured beer has a moderately malty body, with hints of toffee and roastiness, complemented by a well-balanced bitterness, fruity, citrus notes and a pleasing, dry finish. Hops used: Cascade (UK), Challenger Beer style: best bitter"

the Hightail Ale has plenty of grassy and floral tones to tantalise the fussiest olfactory system, a drinking delight.

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2003 Very interesting ale. Sweet taste with a highly floral aroma that is also carried into the taste. A little too floral for continued consumption but that may be a good thing. Overall, a nice unique ale and great discussion ale over a good meal. Pull this one out during desert and you'll never leave the dining table. Recently (early 2003) they seem to have backed off just a little on the "floral" aspect and wow. This Ale is now spectacular and one of my favorites. Neither too malty nor too bitter. Well balanced. A sensational Autumn ale.

Pours clear amber with tan head. Aroma of sweat and fruity with biscuity tones. Floral hoppy tonnes too. Caramel flavour with hoppy bitterness coming through.

A deep reddish orange coloured beer with a frothy white head. A light floral hop aroma, slightly soapy but not unpleasant and a background straw-like maltiness. Dry and fizzy mouthfeel. A mouth filling malt taste, after the hop dominated aroma this is a complete turnaround! Bittersweet caramel and roasted malt, nutty with a hint of smoky spice. The finish carries on with the bittersweet maltiness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
